The clothes are still snug and cosy, but fashion designers are now dreaming of outings and parties, judging from the womenswear collections for next winter presented virtually in New York, London, Milan and Paris.
Kim Jones appreciates a powerful woman; like the Fendi sisters or the latter-day empresses of style that starred in his first women’s ready-to-wear collection for the fashion house, unveiled Wednesday.
Milan Fashion Week, almost wholly digital, will run until March 1. Italy’s top labels will all take part, except Versace, alongside many debut names like Del Core, a new entry premiering with a real show.
Milan's women's ready-to-wear fashion week will once again be taking place via a phygital format. The event runs from 23 February to 1 March and will feature 61 shows, including big-name brands and new arrivals.
Fashionistas love nothing more than a debut; and the biggest this season at an established luxury fashion house was the inauguration of Kim Jones at Fendi with a Bloomsbury-inspired collection in the Paris Bourse.
Pandemic or not, the ultimate expression of luxury in fashion, the Paris haute couture season, will debut digitally Monday with almost 30 houses vying for the attention of the world’s most expensively dressed women.
No live runway show, but some phygital fun on Friday in Paris menswear fashion season from Kim Jones at Dior Men, who melded the tropical moodiness of artist Peter Doig with the pop-militarist mode of his imagination.
